The International Court of Justice Fellowship was started back in 1999 and a limited number of schools were contacted to suggest students suitable for the programme based on grades, research, and other performance factors - George Washington University was amongst them. The fellowship accepts around 15 students from various schools in order to give them the opportunity to hone their work while building relevant experience.
Sara Mansour Fallah, LLM class 2018 at GW University is finishing her fellowship from last year and currently pursuing her judicial career under Judge Abdulqawi Yusuf, President of the ICJ.
